    I think that opportunity was gone when we got Chapman, but perhaps you are right.

    Is the CBT based on actual annual salary, or the AAV of a deal? If Freeman 'just' pushes the Dodgers over for a second year in a row, why wouldn't they just backload the deal a bit to remain under the threshold this year?

    Anyone find it odd that there's very little discussion about Trevor Story or Conforto?

    Heard the Story to the twins rumors a week back, but yeah havenít heard Confortoís name in the media at all.

    Im guessing the chatter with those two will pick up with Freeman off the table now. Or maybe the conversation pivots to CorreaÖ

    Is my math correct that the Dodgers are paying $19.65M in luxury taxes this year?

    Iím pretty sure itís AAV. Otherwise teams would get way too cute with contracts. I think deferred money or front loading are just for internal budgets.

    Both for good reasons

    Story's market is somewhat dependent on Correa. And Story is adamant that he plays shortstop, so his options are very limitd

    Conforto did not have a good year and he may be asking for too much. When Springer signed his contract his agent expected Conforto to land more years and over $200m. Last year he had such a dud year that I don't think he'll get anything close to that.

    Story feels like the biggest landmine in the market. I guess second after Correa if he gets 300M. He seems to have a reputation as a better hitter than he is.

    Makes you wonder why Conforto didn't take the QO at $18M to regain his value before hitting the FA market without a QO attached to him next offseason...he may be kicking himself right now. And I mean what better place to come regain your value than the Toronto Blue Jays!

    He truly could be another Semien type of player for 2022. But who would you punt off the current roster for him? Gurriel?

    Give me Conforto on a 1/18 contract all day, every day. I think you plug him in as a regular DH and roll with an embarrassment of riches.

    um...nobody? Between 4th OFer and DH, he'd have plenty of at bats on this team. I'm fairly confident he's also better than Gurriel (except for the month or 2 each year when Gurriel gets red hot).
